Are you up for a field trip or an adventure off the beaten paths? The new Field Automatic collection from Formex might be a suitable companion. The Swiss brand’s take on a contemporary field watch debuts in a lightweight and scratch-resistant titanium-grade 2 case that is coated with a special hardening treatment. It has a diameter of 41mm, is water-resistant up to 150 meters, and contains an automatic Sellita SW200-1 caliber that ticks behind a closed and engraved case back.
The three-hand timepiece is available in six different dial color options that are inspired by vintage machinery: charcoal, petrol blue, ash grey, mahogany red, ultra violet and sage green. The numbers and markers are recessed, while the outer chapter section is slightly curved upwards for improved legilibilty. The recessed areas and the brushed hands are filled with old radium Super LumiNova that emits a bright yellowish green at night.
Adding a mere 5g to the case weight of 65g, the nylon velcro straps, available in blue and black, are waterproof. The leather straps, offered in five different colors, come with Formex’s carbon composite clasp that automatically adjusts to the circumference of the wrist throughout the day. Its built in fine-adjustment system allows the fitting of the length up to seven mm. All straps can be changed without the use of any tools. The Field Automatic comes with an attractive price tag, starting at $795 on a nylon strap.

I am calling into question question you stating; COSC Certified the new Formex Field watch.
“Swiss Made Sellita SW200-1 (self-winding) Automatic (Standard grade). 26 jewels. Date display. 41 hours power reserve”.
This is a cut and past from Formex’s site and No mention of COSC grade.
Some literature and reviews I’ve read they mentioned having been adjusted to and in house tested to five positions and found to be within COSC specifications, but not certified.
Also I was under the belief COSC certification were only done on Top or Premium Grade movements.
Please, correct me if I am wrong.
This watch isn’t COSC certified.
Well, well. What dya’ know! A Swiss made watch with some nice touches and an upper grade mechanical movement for a “reasonable” price point, when compared to a lot of what’s going on out there these days. It’s about time you brought some focus to bear on this segment of the market.
